Welcome to the 2013 Shimano Catalogue. It doesn’t matter if you are a pro fisherman or a pleasure fisherman... fishing is one of life’s more enjoyable experiences. It’s a way to escape from the pressures of modern life, a place to get back in touch with nature and re-charge your batteries. And one of the advantages of fishing is that once you have your tackle, it can be a relatively cheap sport to participate in. Shimano realises this, which is why we offer such a wide range of tackle covering almost all of the fishing disciplines found throughout the world. From our award winning rods and reels, which use the very latest materials, designs and manufacturing techniques, to our most affordable models suitable for novice or occasional anglers, you can be sure of one thing, Shimano is on your side. As a company with a worldwide reputation for excellence we are always pushing the boundaries of design. Throughout this catalogue you will see new products so advanced that they would have been inconceivable only a few years ago. The award winning Vanquish reel, the new Aero Concept range, the amazing Aero Technium XTB and XSC, the new Big Baitrunner CI4, these are all reels that are at the very top of their league and use the latest materials and design. But Shimano has so much more to offer. Many of our mid-priced reels now use X-Ship engineering which was a development once only found on the Stella, and AR-C spools are now fitted to almost all of our reels as standard, as are stainless steel bearings, roller bearings and Aero Wrap line lay. And it’s not just reels where advanced technology works its way down to all levels.

Specification Icon Key

A few years ago Shimano developed HPC (High Pressure Carbon) technology. This was originally found only on the most expensive rods. Now HPC is widely used through almost all of the rod ranges. Of course time never stands still and we are now using the revolutionary 3M Powerlux resin technology for some of our top models, a material that only a few companies in the world have access to.

The message is clear. Shimano will always push the boundaries of design and technology in an effort to progress, but we will never ignore the needs of the masses, the pleasure fisherman, the occasional fisherman, the novice, or the youngster. We are a brand of the people, a brand you can trust and we sell tackle you can rely on.

New for 2013 Some of the highlights Aero Reels (page 14-15) The new Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano’s strong engineering background to make a unique statement in high performance reel design. The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept umbrella are easy to identify by there oversized spool and rotor combined with a compact body. Each of the reels, specified for Spinning, Match or Feeder fishing have the same sized body. The differences are to be found in the gear ratio’s, handles and cosmetic appearance which are purposely chosen to match the anglers style. A set of line reducers are available to easy adjust the line capacity. All Aero Concept reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides increased power efficiency and extra smooth performance.

Power Pro Bite Motion (page 211) Best New Braided Line award at EFTTEX 2012, this high quality braid has ‘Bite Motion’ 5cm black marks, at approximately every metre, along its whole length. This enables the angler to watch for bites when retrieving, or whilst the line is slack, and greatly improves bite detection.

Vanquish (page 9) Built to the highest Japanese specifications, the award winning Vanquish is the first to come with a CI4+ Magnumlite rotor. The use of this new material, combined with a magnesium body, makes them the lightest spinning reels available for their size. The best Shimano X-Ship engineering is used to guarantee smooth performance and maximum efficiency. 4

Carp Luggage Range (page 175-180) Designed for modern carp anglers, the new Organised Compact Design concept used in the carp luggage range ensures that individual items of luggage work together for more efficient storage and transportation of tackle. Featuring new developments like Duralast zippers and Power Stitch stitching ensures long lasting, trouble free use. The revolutionary Aero Quiver concept, which works with most of our new luggage, offers a simple yet superb method of combining different luggage items for easier transportation.

Aspire DX Spinning (page 63)

The new Aspire DX Spinning is one of the first Shimano rods to use the revolutionary 3M Powerlux resin technology. Very few companies can use Powerlux (usually only specialist rod manufacturers) which is a good indication of the reputation Shimano has for quality and innovation worldwide. The new Aspire DX is built using Shimano HPC300 (High Pressure Carbon) with Powerlux resin and takes rod performance to a new level. Stronger, more resilient and with improved sensitivity, this fantastic new rod also features Fuji K-Type SiC guides, a Shimano Power Cork handle and a custom designed Fossil Wood reel seat. The advanced technology, combined with understated graphics, results in a range of rods which will meet the standards of the most demanding of anglers throughout Europe and the world.

Ultegra Fluorocarbon (page 207) Shimano Ultegra Fluorocarbon is a high quality Japanese fluorocarbon main line constructed from different layers to create an extremely abrasion resistant line. The fast sinking, supple nature of this line offers excellent line management on the reel and is finished with a super smooth outer layer for long distance casting. Ultegra Fluorocarbon benefits for extremely low visibility under water, which offers excellent advantages in clear water conditions. 5

Big Pit Oscillation Systems The quality of line lay is dependant on the spool oscillation speed. Perfect line lay on a long nose (Big Pit) spool, with a long stroke, can only be achieved by using a worm shaft system like Shimano Aerowrap II. The difference in the speed of the oscillating spool (up and down) determines the quality of the line lay. All Shimano Big Pit reels have Aerowrap II, but there are three different spool oscillation speeds which are explained below. Normal Oscillation

< 20 rotor turns per full oscillation (up and down)

Slow Oscillation

20-49 rotor turns per full oscillation (up and down)

Super Slow Oscillation

50-100 rotor turns per full oscillation (up and down)

Normal Oscillation is used on reels like Beastmaster, Aerlex, Navi, Titanos and Biomaster. Slow Oscillation can be found on mid to high end reels like Ultegra and Ultegra CI4. Super Slow Oscillation is only found on Shimano’s ultra high-end Aero Technium and Aero Technium MGS

CONCEPT The new Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano’s strong engineering background and Japanese roots to make a unique statement in high performance reel design. The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept have been designed for specific uses; Match, Feeder and Spinning. The Match and Feeder versions have been developed specifically for the UK match angler, taking into consideration the requirements of modern match fishing. The large diameter spool makes casting easier with the stronger line now being used on commercial fisheries and the front drags deliver smooth, confidence building performance when playing fish. All Aero reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides smooth and efficient power transfer from the handle to the rotor, even when placed under excessive stress.

Lightweight Concept Shimano Lightweight Concept consists of many features to reduce weight, without losing any component strength, whilst at the same time improving rotation of the rotor. Lightweight and strong body and rotor material Lightweight and strong cold forged aluminium spool Ultra lightweight rotor made from CI4+ material Ultra light handle rotation due to gearing efficiency The new CI4+ material is 2.5 times stiffer than the original CI4. With a stiffer body there’s less wear of internal parts. CI4+ material is used in the Magnumlite rotor to decrease weight, which results in light and smooth rotation of the rotor, whilst maintaining the strength required. This strength is required to prevent rotor arms bending when using extreme drag settings which can result in them touching the spool. 7

CI4 is a material created by the interfusion of carbon and polyamide. Initially developed by our world leading cycling division for the Dura Ace brace bracket, CI4 is a flagship technology which has now made the transition into the bodies of fishing reels. The result is a reel whose precision inner workings are housed within a totally rigid protective shell, with all the performance advantages of metal, but weighing less than many inferior plastic type materials. Reels with CI4 bodies are amazingly light and offer increased performance benefits across the board.

NEW

6000 MODEL

Stradic CI4 F

The body and the rotor are constructed from our exclusive lightweight CI4 composite carbon material which produces reliable strength, but with massive weight savings, making this version of the Stradic perfect for light line fishing, balancing short lure or feeder rods, or when holding the rod for extended periods. With a fast speed 6.0:1 retrieve (4000 model 5.8:1) and AR-C spool for improved casting, the Stardic CI4 also uses Aero Wrap II for superb line lay. Featuring 6 S A-RB bearings plus a roller bearing at the heart of this reel, smoothness is reassuring and inspires confidence when playing fish off the multi-disc front drag.

The established and acclaimed front drag Stradic FD is certainly a reel that has stood the test of time. The latest incarnation of this ‘classic’ features X-ship gearing for efficient power transfer which delivers excellent winding power. The Stradic’s quick speed gear ratio (up to 6.0:1 in the smaller sizes) and double handle (1000 - 4000 models), combine perfectly to produce almost wobble-free super fast retrieves, perfect for feeder or float fishing at range or when working lures at a constant speed. The cold forged AR-C spool and Aero Wrap II line lay results in excellent line lay with all mono and braid main lines. New for 2013 is a single handled 6000 size which offers improved distance casting of feeders and more power when playing larger fish.

Front Drag Reels Specification Charts & Glossary

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash. 12% lighter but equally as strong as orignal spool. CI4 is a material created by the interfusion of carbon and polyamide. Initially developed by our cycling division for the Dura Ace brace bracket, a flagship technology which has now made the transition into the bodies of fishing reels. The upshot is a reel whose precision inner workings are housed within a protective shell with all the performance advantages of metal but weighing less and therefore reducing arm fatigue whilst increasing feel and balance through the rod.

Hypergear This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart.

E.I Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation.

Floating Shaft II The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity. The HD (High Durability) gear is a further improvement of the famous Shimano 3D Gears. Applying a special new coating results in a much stronger and smoother running gear system. The out of the box ‘shop feel’ will last much longer.

Original high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearing with extra shield for improved protection against incoming sand, salt or dust. Super Stopper is a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets. With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II.

The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these to shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Rigid Support Drag

Waterproof Drag

This innovative feature eliminates spool wobble, even at light drag settings. So no matter your drag setting, the spool will not wobble. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.

With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as water or sand.

Roller Bearing This piece of fine engineering has holds the main shaft and provides an excellent infinite anti-reverse performance. A Shimano roller bearing delivers a performance equivalent to 3-4 ball bearings.

The pinion gear is supported on both ends by our S-ARB bearings. This gives a super smooth operation,with anti-rust qualities. A larger diameter drive gear transmits more power to the pinion gear. The result is a smoother and higher powered retrieve.

Multipliers

This combination of aluminium and XT7 Graphite retains maximum strength exactly where required.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Hybrid Aluminium Body

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. See the full process on the next page.

Fly

Superb line lay is a Shimano reels hallmark. Fed by Power Roller, the Aero system lays close, parallel coils (Aero Wrap) so line builds evenly on the spool and exits cleanly with minimum friction for longer, more accurate casts.

4000 MODEL

Stella SW Almost five years ago Shimano decided that saltwater anglers who want the very best (and understand that the very best comes at a price), should have the option of a fixed spool reel as good as the Stella models enjoyed by their discerning freshwater counterparts.

Biomaster SW

The SW technology which was previously exclusive to the flagship Stella adorns the Twin Power family. With sizes from 4000 through to a powerhouse 10000 size, these are seriously tough reels, appealing to saltwater anglers seeking all sizes of fish including big game blue water species. Freshwater spinning experts will also appreciate such top-end quality. Bristling with advanced features including AR-C spool, SR one-piece bail arm and Waterproof Rigid Support Drag. Gear ratios range from 4.9:1 on the 8000PG model, to a pacy yet perfectly measured 6.2:1 on the 5000. Powered by 10 x S-ARB bearings, these are true thoroughbreds.

The Biomaster SW is a power reel at an affordable price. The range consists of 3 models suitable for many saltwater disciplines. The 4000 size model with a high gear ratio of 6.2:1 is perfect for lure fishing for sea bass or other fast swimming predators of the sea. The 6000 model is versatile and covers a wide range of UK and blue water fishing styles and the larger 8000 Power Gear model with a low gear ratio of 4.8:1 is extremely well suited for jigging and is strong enough to lift big snappers and groupers to the surface. The Biomaster SW has similar features like its big brothers Stella SW and Twin Power SW-A to make sure it withstands the toughest fights in the most extreme conditions.

Saragosa F A family of reels which brings modern styling and cutting edge features, such as HD gear, Superstopper II and Waterproof micro click multi disc drag, to the heavy-duty end of saltwater fixed spool work. Like the Stella SW, there is no anti-reverse on Saragosa reels because engaging an anti-reverse when playing big fish is dangerous to the angler, the fish, and the environment. You’ll find 5 Shielded AR-B bearings plus a roller bearing on five of the seven reels, with one extra on the two largest models. These two in particular have already become popular with both Butterfly Jigging and Catfish anglers. Kg

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash. These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key rear drag reel features and technology These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

Fightin’ Drag

Original high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearing with extra shield for improved protection against incoming sand, salt or dust.

A secondary drag system conveniently located towards the rear of the reel for instant use. The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Tri-Drag means Triple Drag. Front, Rear and Fightin’ Drag on the same reel. Currently available on the Twin Power CI4 RA (see page 24).

Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these two shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Other features include Super Stopper II, Dyna-Balance, Floating Shaft II and a Power Roller to minimise line twist. The 6000 size is a favourite of specialist anglers fishing for barbel, tench, chub and bream whilst the 1000 size suits carp anglers fishing both large and small waters.

Baitrunner ST-RA In classic black with an XT-7 spool finished in silver, the Baitrunner ST models are packed with far more advanced features than you’d reasonably expect to find on a Baitrunner at this price point.

Incorporating a gutsy 4.6:1 retrieve, double handle and the equivalent of 5 ball bearings, the ST is available in both 6000 and 10000 models. If you’re looking for a quality entry-level free spool reel, look no further than the Baitrunner ST.

Powerful and full of the best Shimano technical innovation, the Big Baitrunner features a large AR-C spool with slow oscillation Aero Wrap II line lay. This combination ensures maximum distance casting performance. Internally all 5 ball bearings are shielded A-RB for increased durability and the gears have been redesigned to minimise friction and increase power transfer from the long aluminium handle to the rotor. This delivers more torque and winding power making fish playing easier and delivering more control. Available in two sizes, the Big size, with its awesome casting performance is perfect for the largest carp waters, whilst the smaller Medium version is the ideal choice for medium sized waters where casting distance isn’t the most important requirement.

Baitcasting

The new Aero Technium 12000 XTB MGS is destined to become the ultimate distance casting reel for those who want the very best. It’s a reel designed without compromise and literally includes the best of everything Shimano has to offer in a sleek futuristic body that is finished almost totally in black with subtle chrome detailing. The magnesium and CI4 body components produce remarkable lightness, which in turn increases rod speed when casting. The combination of the AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and super slow oscillation (approximately 100 turns of line per full oscillation) produces the most perfect line lay and the inclusion of X-ship engineering ensures maximum cranking efficiency when playing fish. A prestigious 9 Shielded AR-B bearings, plus a roller bearing, makes this model the smoothest Shimano ‘Big Pit’ you can own and a few turns of the new slim profile handle reveals it’s true pedigree. The inclusion of a new line guard guarantees trouble free performance and prevents any chance of the line getting under the spool.

BIG PIT REELS COMPARISON CHARTS AERO TECHNIUM MGS XT-B 12000

A guide to key big pit reel features and technology

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk for backlash.

This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart. A small oil-lubrication port can be found on each of the SR-System and S-System reels which, when removed, enables you to apply manufacturer approved lubricants to the inside mechanism.

Floating Shaft II The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.

The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Finetuning of the Baitrunner Spool functionality. Both the small drag setting & the big free spool knob now work independantly. An improved user friendly handling is the result.

With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.

Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape! Only a special computer program developed by Shimano has been able to make these to shapes fit together perfectly – the result is perfect parallel line lay and improved fishing precision.

Waterproof Drag With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as water or sand.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Hypergear

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage. See the full process on the next page.

Fly

2 Speed Oscillation is an advanced way of laying the line onto the spool during the retrieve. As the rotor turns the spool moves forward quickly and then returns slowly. This prevents the coils of line on the spool from interacting with each other and improves casting performance.

The Instant Drag system allows you to adjust the clutch from free spool to ‘fight’ in only a few turns. In the interests of fish safety and the environment, please ensure that you do not exceed the breaking strain of the mono/ braid when tightening the drag as this could lead to line breakage.

Aero Technium MgS XS-B Breathtaking to look at, and then you pick it up … words cannot begin to describe the impact that a magnesium body and rotor make to this legendary reel, weighing in at a staggering 440g. The Super Slow Oscillation and Aero Wrap II work together to ensure excellent line lay which results in awesome casting performance. The gear ratio of 4.3:1 retrieves 102cm of line per crank of the biomechanical, ambidextrous, machined handle - fitted with a wooden torpedo style grip - making short work of winding in from the horizon. The ‘SR’ One Piece Bail totally eliminates line wrapping around the Power Roller and cold forged gearing ensures this reel will never let you down. The multi-disc Instant Drag facility enables a freespool to power setting in just half a turn of the front lever. With 9 shielded A-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing providing a staggering 12 ball bearing type performance this reel is one of the most advanced distance casting models in the World.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY

The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a ‘floating’ position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.

These spools are cold forged from aluminium alloy. The cold forging process creates a lightweight spool with increased structural strength and more resistance to abrasion and damage.

Hypergear This precision-engineered main gear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less effort but returns more retrieve/playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. In fact, all reels offer a breathtaking 90.3% efficiency, which makes them not only feel great, but in years to come they’ll still be quietly purring.

Reduces reel wobble and produces ultra smooth performance.

A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring line to come of the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimize the risk of backlash.

This feature enables you to directly lubricate the inner workings of the reel without having to take it apart. A small oil-lubrication port can be found on each of the SR-System and S-System reels which, when removed, enables you to apply manufacturer approved lubricants to the inside mechanism. The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.

Baitcasting

By improving the internal friction efficiency Shimano succeeded to bring its line lay systems to perfection. Close parallel coils in combination with 2 speed oscillation ensure smoother and further casting.

Floating Shaft II

The Instant Drag system allows you to adjust the clutch from free spool to ‘fight’ in only a few turns. In the interests of fish safety & the environment, please ensure that you do not exceed the breaking strain of the mono/braid when tightening the drag as this could lead to line breakage.

With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.

Fly

A perfect line lay is needed to have the best casting performance and our unbeatable Aero Wrap II system combined with Super Slow Oscillation allows you to make the longest casts ever. Super Slow Oscillation means 50 to 100 rotor turns in one full oscillation. Incorporated in our new Aero Technium XTB Mgs the oscillation speed is extremely slow with a staggering 100 rotor turns per oscillation.

Our DDM 9000 Beastmaster represents the state-of-the-art in electric reel technology. It will amaze you with its incredible performance, all contained in a compact body with a weight of just 1460 grams. Spool capacity is incredible, and can accommodate 1150 metres of 80lb Power Pro. Maximum winding strength is a massive 90kg thanks to the clever construction which puts the engine inside the spool resulting in no loss of power. Also featuring a 25kg maximum drag and a maximum speed of 160m/min, this reel really can tame any beast. With the added benefit of an easy to use menu, which allows you to fish your favourite fishing style quickly.

If you were a satisfied owner of our original DDM HP then you will understand how difficult it was to improve. However our engineers surpassed themselves designing the new DDM PLAYS range. Available in three sizes, the smaller 1000 may be compact in size but it still has the guts to cope with 25kg of winding strength and a max speed of 185m/min. The 4000 is more suited to larger species and features a massive 48kg of winding strength and a speed of 160m/min. Both reels have two A-RB bearings on either side of spool, ensuring smooth and reliable operation for years to come.

Torsa

The big game reel that became a worldwide market leader has too many features to explain in a catalogue! It’s the solid construction, in combination with easy to use features, that is loved by the most demanding big game fishermen. A one-piece machined aluminium frame, Cold forged aluminium spool, A-RB ball bearings, 2-speed gears, Twin Disk Drag system (on 16 & 130 size), elastomere grip and much more. This reel will play and tame the biggest fish with poise. The Tiagra A reel will give you confidence in your tackle, allowing you to concentrate on catching.

Torsa can be summed up as speed, power, durability and castability. When developing the Torsa, Shimano engineers succeeded in designing different types of drag cams, which can be put on the reel to create different drag curves. Eight drag cams are available, all with very different characteristics. The extremely strong frame and spool are created by cold forging and machining the finest aluminium, while the High Efficiency Gears are the biggest Shimano have ever designed for fishing tackle. The gears are housed in a low-based gearbox, creating an excellent balance that offers you more control. Torsa is available in a range of sizes that effectively cover the entire spectrum of British saltwater angling.

2-Speed Gearing This shifting mechanism is designed so that gearing changes are quick and easy, even when fighting a fish. The low gear ratio, used for high-power retrieves, is selected by pushing the button on the base of the handle. Return to the high-speed ratio by sliding the release button along the handle shank. By using two sets of gears, the drive and pinion gears are always engaged so there is no gear meshing during the shift. 48

TLD 2-Speed

A powerful range of lever drag multiplier reels available with either a single or dual speed retrieve. The Tyrnos 30 is the reel currently in vogue on the British shark-angling scene. When loaded with modern, ultra-low diameter braided lines such as PowerPro, the smallest models within the Tyrnos range are proving increasingly popular with specialist anglers. The reels are small and light enough to fish comfortably all day for key species such as cod, ling and pollack, yet retain the inherent strength and high levels of engineering to comfortably handle the most powerful species available in Europe, including the likes of wreck conger, giant skate and sharks offshore in deep water.

Certain angling applications are incredibly demanding on both tackle and the angler. Shimano TLD 2-Speed reels feature a high and a low rate of retrieve, allowing you to instantly and easily switch from high to low ratio and then back again as each changing situation demands. TLD 2-Speed are also the perfect choice for the increasing number of anglers who travel abroad to fish for the likes of Billfish, Tuna and other large, powerful and fast running species.

TR - Charter Special

There’s nothing we can say about our iconic TLD range of multipliers that hasn’t already been said! Wherever you fish in the world today you will find Shimano TLD reels being used by anglers in both fresh and saltwater. TLD’s are a tried and tested product range which is widely regarded as being the industry standard in terms of affordable, high performance, lever drag multiplier reels. The design of the TLD range of reels meets the demanding requirements of British sea anglers who typically load their reels with either monofilament or braided lines, fishing for a wide variety of species with natural baits or artificial lures at anchor or on the drift.

Quite possibly the most versatile, feature loaded and affordable multiplier reels currently available to the UK sea angler. Like the TLD, the Charter Special range of two reels has been thoroughly tried and tested over two decades by countless anglers, in fact it is unlikely that you will step aboard a British charter boat and not find an angler using a Charter Special! Key features that have made Charter Special such a success include a unique combination of a smooth lever drag, a level wind and a centrifugal breaking system all built into a rigid corrosion free graphite frame. The reel is suited to braid or mono lines.

Torium

Tekota

Boasting many features of the flagship Trinidad range, including an ultra fast 6.2:1 retrieve ( 4.9:1 on Tor50), the Torium range of reels offer unsurpassed quality and value for money. With a model to suit any European saltwater angling application requiring the use of a multiplier reel, not surprisingly Torium have become an immensely popular range. In direct response to requests from UK anglers, the Torium 14 has been engineered to include centrifugal brakes making it ideal for beach or uptide offshore fishing.

For many types of sea-angling a slower rate of retrieve is required. In these circumstances the Tekota range is ideal with its 4.2:1 gear ratio, whilst the addition of a level wind will also appeal to anglers looking for excellent line lay. The Tekota is available in 300, 500, 600, 700 and 800 size models, the latter three being available with or without a line counter to help target fish feeding at specific depths.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY Metal Series Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.

Ratcheting Drag Lever Eliminates the chance of the drag lever backing off due to boat vibration, and the detents serve as a reference point as to how much the drag has been increased or reduced.

Waterproof Drag With the use of rubber gaskets, the drag is protected against intrusion of the elements, such as sand and water.

Clicker System Increases the tension on Freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.

Calcutta DC The Calcutta DC incorporates a self energizing Digital Braking system which features 8 different pre-programmed braking patterns based on lure and casting types. This technology provides awesome cast control by applying the ideal amount of braking force at critical intervals. As a result, it is possible to achieve long, accurate casts with consistent backlash control. Less effort is needed to cast the bait further, which puts less stress on the angler throughout long fishing days. Overall, the Digital Control Braking System means further casts, less effort, less backlashes, and easy, quick adjustment. Kg

A versatile multiplier with built in level wind, it’s ideal for freshwater trolling and can also cast & retrieve an array of lure styles in the medium to heavy category. The Variable Brake System (VBS) keeps overruns to a bare minimum, and the Ergonomic thumb bar spool release allows instant casting to moving targets or quick release when trolling.

The Cardiff is the essence of what a small multiplier should be. Strong, responsive and easy to use, it’s built with a die-cast aluminium frame and a machined aluminium spool for strength. The reel’s responsiveness lies in Super Stopper anti-reverse as well as a high 5.8:1 gear ratio, which is perfectly suited to fishing lures requiring a high-speed retrieve and instant hook sets. Complete casting control is achieved thanks to Shimano’s Variable Brake System (VBS). Kg

Saltwater Spinning

For plus with multi or shifting points of centre of gravity and where there is little vibration by the lure when it is in its trajectory state during the cast. This mode will stop overrun immediately after the cast via the circuit board to extend the casting distance.

Front Drag

To get optimum accuracy to cast via pitching method etc. It brakes throughout the cast and it is used for short but accurate distance casting. It is ideal for pitching to cover in snaggy conditions and especially useful when matched with a glass rod where the reel will compensate for accuracy over the glass rod. In a head wind when the lure speed is severely affected by the wind, this mode cuts down backlash in this condition to give extended casting distance.

Rear Drag

The Calais DC has 4 different modes of cast, each with 8 stages to give a combination of 32 different patterns of braking capabilities to suit all fishing conditions. Adjusting this braking system is also extemely easy; the angler only needs to set the mode to suit the style and fishing condition before fine tuning with the external braking knob to get perfect casts every time.

It is for the excellent casting of metal lure like a spoon, spinner jigs and metal jigs etc. Ideally used for distance under the conditions where tail wind is present. The biggest energy immediately after the cast is fully utilized to the extreme, with maximum rpm being raised.

SUPER FREE SYSTEM

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key baitcasting reel features and technology Dartainium Drag

Easy Access Side Plate

This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.

On reels with this feature, to access the VBS system, a set screw on the handle side of the reel is loosed and the opposite sideplate rotates open. From here the VBS weights can be adjusted without having to remove the spool or any other parts of the reel, for easy, worry free adjustment on the water.

Digital Control The waterproof Digital Control System is self-energising: it recharges with each cast and needs no battery or power source. During the initial moments of the cast, the energy generated by the rotation of the spool is stored in the Digital Control circuit board and powers the Digital Braking System on subsequent casts.

Super Free The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.

By flipping a switch, the sideplate swivels downward, giving the angler quick access to adjust VBS weights. The switch is located in a position that is easy to use, yet remains out of the way to prevent accidental opening. The sideplate is smooth for comfort when palming the reel.

VBS VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent spool speed that is easier to manage and takes advantage of the reel’s maximum casting distance.

Cold forging technology is at the very heart of Shimano’s bike and fishing tackle business. This process ensures a strong yet lightweight frame and spool. The frame is then machined and the result is a reel that is as impressive to hold as it is to use. Rods have become increasingly lighter thanks to the use of cutting edge materials and technology, it is therefore important that reels follow suit to ensure a well-balanced outfit and, at 160g, the 7/8 version is one of the lightest metal reels on the market. As well as cold forging, Shimano is known for the quality of its drags and the Biocraft XT benefits here too. Both the 3/4 and 5/6 sizes incorporate a single disk microadjustable drag, whilst the 7/8 features a double disk system. A quick-change push button spool and easy handle conversion complete the specification.

NEW 3M™ Powerlux™ Composites feature a revolutionary technology that contains nanosized spheres of silica so small they are able to flow between individual filaments of carbon fibre, creating a matrix of strength throughout the entire composite. The resulting material enables designers to develop rods that are not only incredibly strong and durable, but also lighter in weight and more sensitive.

Standard Nano Carbon Other nano technologies, like carbon nano tubes, cannot flow between carbon fibers due to their higher length-to-width ratio of 15:1.

3M™ Powerlux™ spherical nanoparticles have a 1:1 length-to-width ratio, uniquely allowing for more than 40 percent of nanoparticles to be uniformly dispersed.

During the heating process of any rod or pole the resin can be pushed to the surface of the blank which may cause an uneven distribution, resulting in weak spots. With High Pressure Carbon (HPC), pressure is applied to the blank during the heating process, forcing the resin to remain inside and ensuring an even spread. The result is amazing, creating a blank which can be up to 40% stronger than blanks made without HPC.

Standard Carbon

During baking, regular carbon develops an uneven distribution of resin in the structure of the blank.

BAKING PROCESS HPC Carbon

HPC Carbon Ratings HPC 400 · HPC 300 HPC 250 · HPC 200 · HPC 100

Adding high pressure during the baking process evenly distributes the resin throughout the blank which eliminates weak spots, and can increase blank strength by up to 40%.

BAKING PROCESS

Although the top-end technologies often make the most headlines, we fully recognise that the majority of anglers cannot afford or justify the spend on top-end products. And that is precisely why we are so excited about GeoFibre. A naturally derived component delivering high rigidity, high compression strength and high tensile strength to rods in the lower to mid-price band. Shimano rods powered by GeoFibre raise performance levels to a new high.

Adding Biofibre reinforces the carbon fibres in all directions. This gives outstanding strength, shock resistance, lightness and power.

By applying a special surface treatment, Shimano have succeeded in making natural cork more durable. Power cork is tactile, ergonomic, lightweight and attractive yet it will not absorb moisture, bacteria and degrade or age cosmetically. Being washable it will last for years and still look like new.

Catana CX & Tele The use of Geofibre in the Catana CX, combined with the progressive guide set-up, generates a superior casting performance and leaves the competition playing ‘catch-up’ in this price category. The Geofibre material in the blank creates more stiffness, maintains strength and provides an excellent fish-playing action. A Vibra Spot reel seat adds further value to this affordable .range

Spinning Rods

Big on value, yet punching way beyond their weight in performance terms, the Alivio CX is a fantastic entry-level spinning range. With Vibra Spot reel seats that track every bump and pluck of your lure’s progress underwater, cork handles and Shimano HL SS guides these rods are a pleasure to use. The main emphasis is on light to medium tasks, but the heavier models will be more than adequate if bigger lures up to 50g are your preferred mode of spinning.

This range was developed for the South Asian market to target Barramundi and Snakehead. These short rods are extremely strong and perfect for trolling for pike. The combination of a stiff powerful backbone and softer tip improves hook setting and during the fight the action of the blank absorbs the head shaking of the fish, eliminating hook pulls.

The development of the Antares Special Progressive was where Shimano originally developed the action which is now being incorporated into many of our other spinning ranges. It’s a perfect balance between casting performance, working the lure correctly and fighting the fish. In the Antares Special Progressive the wonderful action is combined with an extremely lightweight HPC 200 carbon blank and Shimano Ti-lite guides. But don’t be fooled by its lightness, it has the power and strength to control the hardest fighting European predators. The Antares Spinning is fitted with a full Power Cork handle and custom designed reel seat.

The Speedmaster Special Spinning Parabolic is finished to the highest standards, with a HPC100 plus Biofibre blank, Power Cork handle and Fuji guides. The Speedmaster Spinning Parabolic’s are available in a choice of lengths and casting weights and come with Shimano’s Optional Balance Weight system which enables you to adjust the balance of the rod to suit personal tastes.

Yasei Shad Jigging

Vertical jigging has changed a lot over the last ten years. Shimanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original range of rods proved incredibly popular but anglerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skill and knowledge in this area has developed rapidly. Baits like shads, fireball and dropshot have also entered the predator scene, and new jigging techniques have appeared - like Speed Jigging, a fast and furious variant of normal jigging. With Speed Jigging you need a longer rod because the shad is further from the boat or bank and setting the hook is difficult with a standard 1.8m model. The 2.15m Speed Jigging models are ideally suited to casting shads or trolling.

Pike are one of the most popular predatory species and fishing on big lakes or rivers with soft plastics is great sport and can something be incredibly effective. The Yasei Shad Jigging range was developed with this application in mind. Available in 2.7 MH, M and H models, all the rods are well balanced and have enough power in reserve to enable solid hooksets when fishing at distance.

Yasei Jerkbait

Yasei Dropshot

Jerkbait fishing is another technique that has developed rapidly in recent times. In the beginning anglers used super stiff rods and big, bulky jerkbaits guaranteed to punish your arms and wrists when fishing with for extended periods. The Yasei Jerkbait series is a range of well balanced rods with great fish playing actions which can be fished all day long.

Dropshotting can be used to catch all kinds of predators and has grown rapidly in popularity over the last two years. Rather than use the models already available in the U.S. our designers have created a purpose built range, designed with pike and zander in mind. The range consists of a 2.1m model for boat fishing, plus 2.4m and 2.7m versions for fishing from the bank where extra length is required. All three dropshot rods feature small guides with balance weights available as an optional extra.

Yasei Aspius

Yasei Zander Pleasure

Aspius was originally from Eastern Europe, but the fish have found their way into the waters of the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. Fishing for Aspius is hard work, but you will never forget the attack of a big Asp! Sometimes anglers have to cast more than 40 metres from bank or boat, so our designers developed a 3 m version for long distance work. The 2.7m Yasei Aspius was developed for short range fishing, and can be used with all kinds of lures, soft plastics, or the latest Rapala Clacking Minnow.

When deadbaiting for perch and zander you need a soft rod for finesse and the Yasei Spinning Zander have been designed with this in mind. The 2.7m and 3m rods combine perfectly with a 2500 size reel to create the perfect set up. These rods can be used from the bank, or as a second rod for boat fishing.

Yasei Spinning Pike

NEW

Yasei Pike is designed to meet the requirements of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modern pike anglers. The rod is made with a special mix of HPC100 (High Pressure Carbon) plus Biofibre and the use of the special Fuji K-Type Alconite guides makes this rod look stunning and eliminates line tangling in the guides. The range enables you to fish with all kinds of lures form smaller shallow runners to big deep running lures. The special progressive action transmits the action of the lure perfectly and has enough low down power to react firmly to a striking pike. This action also reacts perfectly to powerful runs and head-shaking of the biggest pike without hook pulls.

The strength and progressive action of the Yasei Trevally has been designed to satisfy experienced anglers who don’t want to compromise on quality. Available in a wide range of models to cover all Trevally styles, this family of rods is fitted with excellent guides and reel seats to ensure top performance and reliability, even in the most extreme situations.

NEW Yasei Tenya

Yasei Bottomship

This is a new jigging technique which originated in Japan and is getting more popular in the Mediterranean. Natural bait like a shrimp is hooked on a specially designed jig head, which produces a fluttering action. The combination of this action and natural smell triggers bottom fish to feed. The rod comes in 2 models to fish all of the different sizes Shimano Tenya jigs.

Yasei Bottom Ship was developed for bottom ship fishing for predators of all sizes using Inchiku lures. Available in a wide range of action strengths, for both inshore and very deep water, the affordable cost of the Yasei Bottom Ship makes them a perfect solution for serious bottom ship anglers of all abilities.

NEW Yasei S.T.C Monster The first Yasei rod made for the Shimano Travel Concept! The Yasei Monster is made to target bigger fish, from the bank or from the boat. The 240 is made for boat fishing, while the 315 has an extra heavy action for bank fishing. The blank is made of the special mix of HPC100 carbon and Biofibre for improved balance and strength. Finished with a Fuji DPS reel seat, Fuji Alconite guides and EVA grips, this rod is perfect for the travelling angler or those who want a rod in the car at all times.

Yasei Red Perch

A fast action rod with a relatively sensitive tip for casting light weight lures a good distance. There’s a big reserve of power in the butt section to hook and play hard-fighting fish quickly. With a casting weight rating of 7-28g the Yasei Red Aspius also makes a great all round spinning rod.

The rod has an extremely fast action with a sensitive tip. There’s enough power in the tip to work small lures, spinners and jigs correctly for perch. You will enjoy this increasingly popular style of light lure fishing for perch and this model has a superb though action for maximise the fun.

Yasei Red Dropshot

Yasei Red Twitch

These rods have a stiff butt section with a sensitive tip, the perfect action for Dropshot fishing. Perfect for use with small soft baits, the sensitive tip not only imparts better action into the lure, it also maximises bite indication, whilst the stiff butt helps set the hook and control hard fighting fish, especially when fishing near underwater snags and structure.

Another addition to the Yasei predator family, the Yasei Red Twitch is a special rod developed for top-water fishing techniques. The rod is supplied with two tips, one with an extra fast stiff action for the twitch and one with a fast medium parabolic action for top water methods. Two models are available, a Medium action for casting up to 28g and a Heavy model for lures from 14-42g.

Yasei Red Vertical Jigging These fast tip action rods have the right action to work a soft bait and make it literally come alive. There’s enough sensitivity to feel the lightest bites and enough backbone to strike fast and hook the fish.

Yasei Red Shad Jigging These rods have a progressive action to cast the largest shads and land the biggest predators. This type of action ensures the best contact between rod and fish even during extreme conditions, like big fast flowing rivers and vast deep lakes.

Yasei Red Jerkbait The extremely stiff and hard action of this model jerks your lure with force through the surface, splashing and attracting pike, who will attack from below. The stiff action is needed to give the special jerk action required.

The latest Yasei Red concept just wouldn’t be complete without two rods designed for the most sporting of inshore saltwater predators, the sea bass. Two lengths are available. The 2.40m, with a 7-35g casting action, is perfect for rubber lures and little poppers, whilst the longer 2.70m, with a 10-50g casting action, is more suited to larger lures and bigger hard baits like the Rapala Max Rap 15 or 17.

Ferocious Solid rods are designed to cast jerkbaits or stickbaits then allow you to impart a very precise action on the lure. The specific action of the rod tip, with it’s ultra-fast recovery, will allow great rod tip speed to cast the extra meters that makes the difference. Steady Cast technology lowers rod vibration and enhances accuracy. These rods are perfect for casting minnow type baits into the wind and then work them with great precision. The 240H model can cast big 30g lures with no problem but is still easy to fish with. The Ferocious rods can also be used with soft plastic or metal jigs as the greater length allows good control on the fall.

Power Game rods are powerful enough to fish from shore. They can cast a 28g Max Rap a long way and then fight and land large sea bass from rocky shores. Shore fishermen often need to reach a long distance where the predators are situated, and have a long leader for a better presentation of the bait. The distance you will achieve with these rods will definitely let you cover more fish.

Wild Romance Pelagic Offshore Spinning for Bluefin tuna needs a compromise between a soft tip and brute force. Tuna often feed on very small prey (anchovies from 4 to 10cm in length) and do not attack large lures. You will often need to cast a lure less than 40g a long way, and then have enough power to fight one of the strongest fish in the ocean. The Pelagic Offshore rod has been designed specifically to solve this difficult equation, a soft tip to cast a long way and a strong butt to fish with 10kg of drag. This rod is also great for light Tropical fishing with a line rating up to 65lbs.

Tribal XS1

The XS1 is the result of extensive testing to produce one of the slimmest but most responsive rods available today. New technology has enabled Shimano to produce a blank that will instantly recover after the cast, contributing to distance and accuracy whilst retaining a perfect playing curve. The powerful HPC200 carbon blanks and reel seat combine strength and lightness, while the slightly tapered detail of the rear grip, stainless engraved butt cap and understated graphics sets this rod off from the competition in the looks department. Two Intensity versions are also available for the experience caster along with both a marker and spod version. All models fitted with a 50mm butt ring to aid distance casting.

The Tribal Carp uses XT100 and High Pressure Carbon, combined with a dual taper design and 1k strengthening wrap to produce a stiff but progressive action. The Tribal Carp has the power to punch out PVA bags, method feeders and big leads, whilst maintaining the playing action required to ensure a safe hook-hold. The 2¾lb version has been designed to deliver excellent casting performance and accuracy up to 100m. The more powerful 3¼lb rod offers extreme distance performance. The Anti Wrap tip guide keeps tip wrap-rounds to a minimum. The 50mm slim frame SiC butt guide reduces weight, and increases casting potential by smoothing the line cone profile as it leaves the reel.

A strengthening 3K weave has also been incorporated to maximize strength.

The 10 and 11ft versions are specially designed for the day ticket or boat angler where shorter distance casting is required. The shorter lengths of this range vastly improve casting accuracy, giving more control in confined swims. All models are fitted with Shimano Hardlite guides with an anti-wrap tip version. XT60

Tribal Carp Rods · Spod & Marker Rods

NEW

Both the Standard and Distance (D) versions of the Tribal Marker rods have an increased tip guide diameter. After intensive testing, it was found that the increased diameter magnified sensitivity through the rod making identifying gravel, silt or weed easier. The cosmetics of the marker rods match all in the Tribal family and the inclusion of SiC guides enhances the range further. The range comprises a standard 12’ model, 12’ 6” Distance model and for extreme range a longer 13’ Distance model.

Designed with distance in mind, the Tribal Spod models can launch large spods or spombs to extreme ranges. Test curves have been increased slightly for more power and combined with a progressive action the blank can be compressed more easily than other high end models and also enhances casting accuracy. Graphics match all of the Tribal carp rods and the 3K strengthening weave limits any possibility of breakage. The SiC guides are suitable for both mono and braid main lines and are tough enough to handle repeated casting and retrieval.

This model has been designed for carp anglers fishing surface baits, when lighter casting weights are used and a quick strike is often required to hook the fish. Built on 100 HPC carbon blanks, the Tribal Carp Floater comes in two models. Both are the same length and test curve, but the Longcast (TLCFL) version has a different blend of carbons for increased casting performance. The relatively soft test curves are perfect for close range work or when using small hooks to fool wary surface feeding carp.

The Trotter is a fast tapered, well balanced rod which makes float control on rivers much easier than when using shorter Match type rods. The soft tip section means this rod is suitable for small hooks and light lines, although the fast action means there is plenty of power in the butt which enables it to be used with confidence for larger fish like chub and barbel.

The River Feeder is a pleasure to use when feeder fishing or link legering on small to medium sized rivers. Ideal for shy feeding roach and dace in the winter, or sorting out the larger specimens when using a maggot feeder for big chub and barbel in the summer, this rod will cope with most situations and has a superb through action. The assortment of tips ensures you’ll have the perfect indication no matter what the conditions.

10-11.5ft Apex Predator The Apex Predator is the mother of all predator rods. Built to tame monster fish, it performs equally well with smaller specimens too. The Apex can be fished at 10ft or 11.5ft. The shorter version is perfect boat fishing, stalking or casting lures. When used at is longer length it can be used on rivers, medium range on lakes when the extra length aids setting the hooks. A powerful through action rod with a reserve of power should you need it.

12ft Allround Float The Allround Float is exactly what it says, the perfect all rounder. It can be used on commercial waters fishing for hard fighting carp, but also has the finesse required to cast light floats accurately towards cover when fishing for tench and shy biting Crucians. In testing, it also performed beautifully on the smaller rivers, trotting stick floats for roach, dace and even big chub.

12ft 6in Tench Float Float fishing is undeniably the ‘purist’ form of targeting tench and this rod, with its two-piece construction plus cork handle and 14 well spaced guides is the perfect weapon. Its soft tip action cushions the lunges of powerful fish at close range, ensuring small hooks stay put without pulling out at the net. Fixtures include keeper ring, carbon line clip plus Shimano custom reel seat.

11-12ft 1½lb Barbel Multi Classic

On larger rivers, heavier tackle and stronger flood water conditions present a different challenge to Purist anglers seeking barbel. The Purist Multi Barbel Power’s 2lb test curve keeps you in control of all these demands, whilst still retaining a sweet playing action to tire out and defeat big fish. Fixtures are the same as the lighter Classic version. The guideless 1ft extension takes the length from 12ft to 13ft and is removable whilst fishing, providing that little extra length to keep line out of the water when conditions dictate.

Barbel are part and parcel of most all-round specialist anglers agenda. Some of the biggest known barbel live in small rivers where casting heavy weights and countering strong flows are not an issue. It’s a common mistake for anglers to fish with too powerful a rod which lacks the correct playing action. With cork/Duplon grip and custom Shimano reel seat, the 1½lb test curve Purist Barbel Classic is ideal for such situations, providing two length options plus quivertip and Avon top sections.

12ft 6in Brench

11ft-12ft 6in Light Specialist

‘Brench’ was born out of the names of two species; bream and tench. Both reach impressive sizes of over 10lb, often inhabiting large, deep and weedy gravel pits which present a real challenge to anglers targeting them. A fast tip action on this two-piece rod aids distance casting. Features include Shimano reel seat, cork handle, carbon line clip and seven quality Hardlite guides.

This ‘go-anywhere’ rod can be used with confidence on rivers, drains and lakes of all sizes. More than just another multi-length rod, its parabolic action and dual length facility, thanks to a one foot extension, are further boosted by the inclusion of two different strength Avon top sections, Shimano reel seat, cork handle plus protective carbon line clip.

12ft Avon Quiver S.T.C. The STC Avon Quiver is a six piece rod which is ideal for keeping in the car for opportune sessions. The through action is not compromised by its multi-piece construction, and as well as an Avon top there is also a quivertip top for finer bite registration. The versatile nature of this rod makes it perfect for a wide range of species and situations encountered on rivers and still waters.

12ft 2¾lb Deadbait Classic

8ft Pikey Poker

Deadbaiting remains the number one method for UK predator anglers and the sheer numbers of big pike which fall to this approach each season justify its enduring popularity. The 12ft 2¾lb Classic is the lighter of two deadbait rods in the Purist range. Features include cork/EVA handle, Shimano reel seat, six perfectly spaced and sized Hardlite guides plus hook keeper and protective carbon line clip.

A short but beefy rod for larger lures and heavier predators on bigger deeper waters, the Pikey Poker is another tremendous addition to the Purist range. Designed to withstand heavy duty use and abuse from boat or bank, its part cork part EVA handle carries a Shimano plate reel seat while seven quality Shimano Hardlite guides ensure smooth passage of line or braid and aid distance casting and a smooth retrieve.

12ft 3lb Deadbait Distance

6ft 6in Little Ripper

On waters where pike lay further from the bank, the 12ft 3lb Distance rod will prove to be a better option than the 2¾lb Classic for the deadbait angler. Likewise if larger baits such as mackerel and herring are the choice, its extra power propels them further on the cast, without fear of overloading the rod or ripping the hooks out. The high grade fixtures are otherwise identical to the Classic version and include Shimano Hardlite guides.

Equipped with a custom designed Shimano trigger reel seat, EVA grips, seven quality Shimano Hardlite guides plus hook keeper, the Little Ripper is a jerkbait angler’s best friend. Built to perform time after time in the most demanding predator fishing situations the short 6’ 6” length imparts extra life into jerkbaits and other large lures

7ft Creek Critter Fishing for perch, pike and chub with tiny lures and spinners is a growing part of the all-rounder’s armoury, tempting specimens from the most unsuspecting waters. The Creek Critter is the perfect weapon on canals, small rivers and lakes and has a multi-length design for additional versatility. Its spliced solid carbon tip enables pinpoint accurate casts to get in between the most awkward snags where the best fish hide.

Commercial Rods

Speedmaster Commercial offers the best rods possible for modern match carp fishing methods. There are three different styles of rod, each designed with a specific use in mind - Pellet Wagglers, Feeders and Light Float. All make use of our exclusive HPC (High Pressure Carbon) manufacturing process. The result of this is a range of rods that are light, slim and perfectly balanced with an almost elastic fish-playing action. All rods are two piece and can be transported made up in rod sleeves.

Beastmaster • BMBX12CPP (12' Power Pellet) • BMBX12CTP (12' Twin Power) • BMBX12CBW (12' Baggin' Waggler)

LIGHT FLOAT RODS – BLUE ROD BAND for the new age angler, who targets commercial pools and just enjoys catching fish - whether they be Carp, F1’s, skimmers or even Tench. The commercial light range is perfect for them all.

With waggler fishing currently going through a bit of a renaissance in the UK, these two rods fill the gap for anglers looking for the ultimate all-round rod. The Speedmaster Lights fill the gap between the out-and-out pellet waggler rod, and the more conventional standard match rods. And don’t let the Light tag fool you. These two are more than capable of taming big Carp, whilst at the same time their action means that hook pulls while catching F1 Carp and skimmers will soon become a thing of the past. To sum up, these rods cater

because it features a test curve of 1.75lb, and is specifically designed for fishing the bagging waggler. The second top is a feeder top, and again it carries bags of power with method feeder and big fish in mind. This is the ideal rod for the angler who doesn’t want to compromise in terms of quality but wants one rod that can do it all. The Beastmaster Twin Power truly is that rod.

With Carp getting bigger and bigger in commercial fisheries across the country, no range would be complete without a 12’ power float rod. This rod is ideal for everything from heavy splasher waggler work, to dealing with conventional float work for big Carp in the margins. The clue to what this rod is capable of is in the name. The Power Pellet has bags of strength, so if you have a water with good sized Carp then this is the ideal rod for you. The Twin Power is an extremely versatile rod which, as its name suggests, comes with two top sections. The first is a looks like a standard float top, but this is no ordinary section

Our commercial range of rods have built up something of a cult following over the years, and are now used by many top anglers. They are designed to produce the best possible action, which they achieve by having additional tapered extensions (not parallel softer extensions), and one piece quiver top sections.

The 12’6 Beastmaster commercial distance feeder has been designed specifically for the long range method. This tactic is now becoming the norm on a number of different larger venues, and is one rod which you can certain of helping to go the distance . . . and more. The Speedmaster comes at 12ft with a ringless 1ft extension that can be added while fishing just to get that extra yardage if needed. Team either up with the Ultegra 4500 XTB reel, and put quite simply, you have the ultimate long range feeder set up which allows you to put yards on the anglers around you. Some would call that an unfair advantage, we would say it’s all about using the right rod for the job, and with the Shimano Beastmaster feeder range we feel we have all the bases covered.

FEEDER RODS – RED ROD BAND The Commercial range of feeder rods have built up a loyal following. The range starts off with quite possibly the ultimate commercial angler’s tool - the iconic 9-11. Not only does this rod have the multi length facility, but it also features a one piece top section (2 Supplied with Beastmaster, 3 with Speedmaster), which gives you an unsurpassed playing action once a fish is hooked. Drop the rod down to 9’ and it becomes the ideal tool for those tight swims in summer, and a perfect winter bomb rod in a match where every fish needs to count. The 11’6 feeder has been specifically designed for the angler who wants a little bit more in terms of distance than the 9-11 can offer. The 11’6 also has a bit more in terms of back bone, which means that it can handle Carp to double figures with ease.

PELLET RODS – YELLOW ROD BAND Pellet waggler fishing has become the tactic of the last few years, and we at Shimano have come up with two rods for the job. Firstly the multi length 9-11 which, when assembled at 9’, gives you the perfect rod for those swims where space is tight and the fish are just out of pole range. At 11’, it’s a rod that really can cope with anything that is put in front of it in terms of fish size. The 11’6 offers that little bit more in terms of casting distance, whilst also having a little bit more in the locker in terms of power to cope

This fast actioned range of affordable match rods would have carried a price tag twice as high only a few years ago. The advance of technology has brought XT40 carbon, Hardlite guides and Shimano reel seats within the reach of more and more anglers, and Catana represents an excellent choice for the club or match angler looking for a rod with an attractive price tag.

Catana BX Tele The Catana BX Tele Match reproduces the action of a more traditional 3 piece match rod, but with the added convenience of a short transport length. Built on a slim XT40 carbon blank, the Catana is available in 5 versions, from a traditional 13ft length to a long 17ft version that offers superb float control. Lined guides and an ergonomic Shimano reel seat give the Catana BX Tele Match a classic high quality look that matches its performance. Their is a 15ft specimen (S) version which has a more powerful action.

Beastmaster BX Carp Float

Reflecting the desire for larger than usual double leg guides on carp type match rods, we’ve included two options in the Beastmaster BX Float range. Built on XT60 plus Biofibre blanks, which feature Shimano Dynamic Response (SDR) technology for improved casting and fish-playing, both models are fitted with Shimano Hardlite guides and a custom designed Shimano reels seat.

Catching carp or barbel on the float is one of the most enjoyable forms of fishing. The 13ft Beastmaster BX Carp Float rod enhances this pleasure through an XT60 plus Biofibre blank, expertly designed to provide a perfect blend of power and finesse. Fitted with 16 Shimano Hardlite guides plus Shimano reel seat, SDR and a cork/EVA handle, it’s the ideal all-round choice for the modern float angler.

Vengeance Float

Shimano’s Catana CX Float rods provide excellent control when float fishing, with slightly more power than a traditional match rod. The faster, greatly improved action gives better hook sets. They come with full cork handle and Shimano Hardlite guides, on a slim XT40 plus Geofibre blank. The 12’ is particularly suitable for made-made day ticket waters.

In three lengths, 12’, 13’ and 14’, the Vengeance Float is an all round range, powerful enough to cope with bigger coarse fish on rivers and stillwaters and extremely affordable. The XT30 + Geofibre blank has a cork/EVA handle with Shimano reel seat, and the matt black finish on the blank make these rods look more expensive than they actually are.

TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY A guide to key pole features and technology Through the application of a unique high grade of carbon, that is lighter yet more resistant to wear and tear than normal woven carbon, Aero Joint boosts the speed of unshipping, reduces the chance of the joint sticking, especially in the wet, and decreases the chance of damage. Shimano Alignment system (S.A.S.) is a system to optimise the pole action. During production, the backbone of each section is found and marked. When assembled according to the S.A.S marks you get a stiffer performance.

The perfect matt finish for a pole. The silky smooth surface makes it easier to ship the sections of your pole. Because there’s no sanding process involved, the carbon fibres stay intact and no matt paint is needed, therefore saving weight. In this process a layer is formed on the outer surface, which protects the fibres from damage when scratched.

Available on some Shimano poles, this unique process results in a finish that is silky smooth for almost frictionless shipping and unshipping in both hot and wet conditions. It also provides great grip for breaking down sections and playing fish. 126

Shimano never stops developing new processes, products and components and the new TLD Trolling features many of these. An example is the new roller guides fitted to the TLD which cope with hardest conditions. The glassfibre butt reduces the rods weight considerably and the newly designed blank makes this model even stronger than the legendary Beastmaster it replaces. With a similar progressive action to Tiagra Ultra and Tyrnos, this new range is outstanding.

The new ranges of Shimano luggage have some of the most radical and ground-breaking designs ever seen in the angling industry. Just like our rods and reels, great care and attention has been paid to the needs of anglers. Within the new ranges, innovative products have been created with specific aims to reflect the aspirations of specialist and specimen anglers alike. Scan the QR codes below with your mobile phone to learn more about our new luggage features.

Key Features

The Organised Compact Design system allows you to choose from numerous specialised accessory cases that fit, jigsaw-like into one of the many compatible carryalls, with the option to change them around for specific venues or the length of time that you plan to spend fishing.

The Aero Quiver system is simply based around an adjustable strap that components can be clipped onto. This offers countless variations, giving the angler the option to take as little or much tackle as they wish. This includes ready made rods, nets, pods, shelters, mats, slings and many more . . .

ZIPPERS

The new Duralast zips can handle the most extreme abuse to ensure Shimano luggage lives up to the expectations of the most demanding anglers.

Tough Power Stitching is widely used and involves double stitched seams which produce increased strength.
